Climbing Gear Q & A / Re: Grip tape
« Last post by Smear on December 15, 2017, 03:59:38 PM »
I have always used 3m linerless(I think that is what it is called) electrical tape.It is around 6 or 7 dollars a roll from what I remember.
It may be called all weather electrical tape also.
There is usually enough to do a pair of tools a couple of times.
Depot or lowes should have it.
My 2 cents

Thanks, PG

And itís not just their boots that are great Ė itís their people too! So be sure to swing by the La Sportiva Demo table to sample the goods!

Events & Announcements / Raphael Slawinksi - Saturday Night Featured Presenter!
« Last post by MWV_IceFest on December 14, 2017, 08:46:11 AM »
Big news coming from the Ice Fest HQ today - we just got word that Raphael Slawinski will be our featured presenter on Saturday night (February 3rd)! Raphael is known to be a quiet crusher who seeks out brilliant and burly routes in the alpine. He is known primarily for his first ascents in his home range of the Canadian Rockies, but he has also ticked mega FA's in Alaska and the Karakoram, receiving the Piolet d'Or for one of those routes in 2014. Check out http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/ to read more about Raphael, and get psyched, because this is going to be good! Big thanks to Arc'teryx for the support in making it all happen!

I decided to update the mountain project entry for the Kinsman Notch: Lost River area to make mention of the fire, and decided to make a before and after comparison, which I thought might also be useful to post here:

thanks for posting. that's pretty amazing.

There are also a variety of interesting pictures of the fire posted on Ken Watson's photography page. I posted two of these to Mountain Project with Ken's permission.

It'll be interesting to see what it looks like after the winter. A fair bit of "new" rock has been exposed.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Tuckerman, Saturday 9-Dec.
« Last post by ralbert20 on December 11, 2017, 09:22:07 AM »
Was absolutely stunning! It was my first time ice climbing in Tuckerman, (I know... I know...) and I had no idea how much ice there is up there! We only did 3 of the pitches we saw, but we could have done at least half a dozen more. They are steeper and longer than they look as well. We did a sweet little line in a bowl, then did a corner system, and then a grade 4 pillar. Off to the left, we could see another grade 4, or possibly grade 5, and some other curtains. There was also a nice slab way left that looked like grade 3, and possibly 2 pitches.

I can't believe it took me so long to get in there for ice. We typically just go to Pinnacle, but Tuckerman is great for early season ice. We were also completely alone on the climbs. There were some die-hard skiers who skied a few short turns, but no one else was climbing. I wonder how much the snow will affect the climbs - maybe they filled in now.
